Ground Control + Koni = ?

Anyone here have Ground Control coilovers and Koni adjustable shocks installed? If so, how are they together? Nice? How do you think this combination compares to a full coilover? What about the price? What's the lowest you think I could get this combination? I've seen them go for $800 in our Marketplace forum, but that's if I wait for someone to sell them. I hear there's a problem with the Koni adjustment in back? What's that about? WTF? I sound like a newbie! [IMG]i/expressions/laugh2.gif[/IMG]

Not sure about the ground control + koni combo, but as for the problem with the adjustment in the back with the konis is easily rectified. The problem some people have is that the **** used for the ajustment in the rear is that they are unable to turn it because of a metal piece preventing the adjustment. You can either bend the metal or do what I do. Just use a set of pliers to adjust the rear.

The problem with the konis in the back is that you can't fit the adjustment **** on unless you cut or bend some metal that is in the way. Looks like it can easily be bent out of the way but I wish I didnt have to do that.

Oh yeah? Any problems with the installation? Did you install it yourself? What about the bump stops. Did you cut those, or no need? How much of a drop do you have?

I have it dropped 2" front and rear, but still go very slowly on those bumps, otherwise, I'll scratch my mid pipe and my rear muffler...

Hey Toolowcivic, is that ALL you have for it to be a smooth ride? Because ppl always say that it is a good combo but they have other mods to help.
